Mondays, 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm with Karen
This is another recent, unreleased composition by Georges Lammam (and Naser Musa) composed specifically for dance in "mejance" style.
The piece has a spirited, veil-demanding introduction, rhythm changes, rotating instrument focus, and (of course) a violin taksim. Cindy will be choreographing the veil opening, Karen the middle, and both co-choreographing the end.
Level: 4 - Advanced
Ya Dale Ya Rouhi
Thursdays, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm with Karen
Expect a simple, molasses-fueled, romantic dance to this 2012 hit by Lebanese superstar Wael Kfoury.
If you've been in a class lately, you've heard this song in the warm-up. Georges Lammam introduced it to me and - as with Dancing Bear - the plan is to perform this to LIVE MUSIC at GBDAC2021.
Level: 2-3 - Beginner / Intermediate
Universal Mind Control
Wednesdays, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm with Jessica
This choreography is a fusion of belly dance and hip hop moves.
Busting a move with the roger rabbit, the humpty dance and more. We will hair flip, shimmy and line dance to one of my favorite songs.
Level: 4.5 - Advanced
Shape of You
Thursdays, 7:45 pm - 8:45 pm with Laura
A classy and sassy dance! For this choreography, we will be utilizing the most mesmerizing of props: LED fan veils.
Picture beautiful, flowing, multi-colored silk with bright, radiant lights. We will be dancing to an instrumental oud cover of the popular Ed Sheeran song "Shape of You". Standard van veil movements will be implemented with a few surprises incorporated.
Hop on board for this class ASAP as space will be limited.
Purchase of fan veils not required, but a group costume will run approx $80.
Classes start on March 11th.
Level: 3.0 - Intermediate
Saturdays, 9:30 am - 10:30 am with Valori
